Wisconsin's Model Academic Standards for Information and Technology Literacy. Bulletin No. 90002.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison.
This publication defines academic standards and describes the development, adoption, and use of Wisconsin's Model Academic Standards, as well benefits of academic standards and application of the standards across the curriculum. The five categories that applications fall into include: (1) application of the basics; (2) ability to think; (3) skill in communication; (4) production of quality work; and (5) connections with community. The information and technology literacy standards are grouped into four categories or content standards specifying what a student should know and be able to do. The first two content standards focus on technology use and information processing skills; the latter two build upon these by adding performance standards that deal with attitudes, appreciation, independent learning, teamwork skills, and personal and social responsibility. The four content standards are: media and technology; information and inquiry; independent learning; and the learning community. Each content standard is followed by performance standards that tell how students will show that they are meeting the content standard. Each performance standard includes a number of indicators that detail how students will demonstrate proficiency in a particular area. (Contains a glossary.) (AEF)
